 It is informed with opening that Prince master of sedimentary soil banked lord of a castle [agetsuchijoshu], Iwasaki Tadahisa Umamori [iwasakishimenokamitadahisa] of Yatsushiro recommended rush cultivation now in the territory about 500 years ago. Iwasaki Shrine worshiping Isao Iwasaki is built in the ruins of sedimentary soil banked-jo Castle and collects faith of local resident.
  Because most of Yatsushiro plains are blessed with water at reclaimed land, Yatsushiro area is known as the number one in Japan rush production place. For 1:00 period, we are affected by foreign cheap rush, and amount of production has largely decreased, but we work on selective breeding or development of new rush product while Japanese culture is reviewed some other time, and food development that stood on utilization and health intention to new life space is performed lively.
